How does ZelloWork differ from the free Zello app?

ZelloWork Push-to-Talk (PTT) is a better option for businesses and organizations because it provides more control, more security, and assigned group channels. ZelloWork offers the following features that are not available with the free app:

ZelloWork Features


Private networks

A secure and private network with full control over who can access the network and which users communicate with each other within your network.
Secure end-to-end encryption We offer the highest level of security using RSA 1024-bit for authentication, digital signatures, secure media session keys exchange and AES 256-bit encryption for audio. TLS to control traffic encryption between Zello clients and Zello servers is also offered.

Dedicated servers

ZelloWork operates on a physically separate network of servers that are specifically sized to meet the capacity needs of businesses. The free consumer Zello app, on occasion, may be affected by peak usage that can be unpredictable.
On-premise Server option Host ZelloWork on your own local WiFi or LAN network for ultimate control and privacy. The On-premise Server option is intended for clients who need maximum security, are located in remote areas with little to no internet connection, or have existing servers hosting all other software components.
Emergency Alert Button A dedicated SOS alert button which sends audio, text, and location into a specified emergency channel. This is designed for businesses with lone-worker and hazardous environments. 
Management console A web-based management interface to allow businesses to configure and control users, their devices, and channels. It also shows user status at-a-glance and has many account management features.
LMR integration ZelloWork includes a radio gateway solution that lets you seamlessly integrate your existing two-way radio network to Zello smartphones.
Location tracking and Premium Maps The Management Console offers a real-time mapping feature which displays a user's current location on OpenStreetMap, device battery level, and speed of travel. A Premium Map upgrade adds Google Maps and traffic services, along with Location History (bread-crumb trail).
Message Vault A premium upgrade which allows you to archive all voice messages, photos, and texts for a period of up to 2 years. Data can be exported from the Management Console.
Clone User and User Import features Use this handy feature to add new users and admins by cloning an existing record. Cloning can be done from a user's details screen or with the Import Users feature. 
User Roles Allows administrators to choose who their users can hear and speak to within a channel. Driver and dispatch roles can be created, so drivers do not have to hear each other within a channel to reduce noise and distractions while driving. Broadcast channels can be created to make important announcements, without having everyone reply within the same channel.
Subscription managed from the console If you pay with a credit card, you can pause or cancel your subscription at any time. There is no cancellation fee and charges are prorated to the actual time the network is active. 
Technical support Our customers have 24/7 access to a dedicated technical support team.
Windows Mobile support We support Windows Mobile CE, as well as Windows Embedded Handheld devices, allowing companies to use existing mobile scanners as PTT devices.
Crosslink ZelloWork channels can link to other ZelloWork channels that are not in the same organization or network. For example, your company's channel can link to a third-party or vendor's ZelloWork channel.
API/SDKs Windows, iOS, and Android SDKs are available to simplify use between multiple apps and to integrate ZelloWork within your own app. The server-side API is available to anyone with a ZelloWork account.
QuickConnect for faster communications With QuickConnect enabled, transmissions in channels can attain near-zero latency, comparable to the latency on a two-way radio.
